My goodness, trip down memory lane.. raised in Tucson from 12 to 24, 1960 till 72.
Knew all these wonderful places, my favorite being Ye Olde Lantern with the appetizer tray, large red leather booths, fireplace and warm friendly staff.
My parents have long since passed but the first dinner we had when we visited Tucson before moving there on Xmas 59 was the Lantern. Lived near Coat of Arms and had rehearsal dinner at Cliff House, reception Coat of Arms. Great memories of so many others. Redwood Lodge, Vitos, Skyroom..Tucson has a proud heritiage of great eats. Thanks for the memories!!
Last Chance was dynamite. You could go in just before closing and get free slices and whole pizzas leftover from the evening. This was in the mid-70s as I recall. The beer was always frosty cold.
Cora's Cafe on the corner of Irvington and Old Nogales/6th - Right across from the Rodeo grounds.. Some of the best cheap breakfast I'd been raised on for special morning occasions. It was too tragic when it closed and re opened as some sort of mexican sea food place.
